Leslie Jordan and Varla Jean Merman Come to Kentucky Center Tonight

LEO A LITTLE OFF CENTER will bring an outrageous evening with Leslie Jordan and Varla Jean Merman to the Kentucky Center tonight, February 2, 8 pm at the Bomhard Theater. Nothing is sacred as this cross-dressing "chantoozie" and her "evil Southern leprechaun" present an evening of song and slander. Their performance together in LUCKY GUY has been described as "if Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman had stood in front of the right pair of funhouse mirrors, they might have resembled Ms. Merman and Mr. Jordan in stature as well as comedic talent."

Leslie is the 2006 Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his delicious portrayal of "Beverley Leslie" on "Will and Grace." Television audiences will also remember him for his recurring roles on "Privileged," "Ugly Betty," "Boston Legal," and "Reba." Varla Jean Merman's alter ego Jeffery Roberson shared the Outfest Film Festival "Best Actor" Award and the Aspen HBO Film Festival "Best Actress" Award with his costars Jack Plotnick and Clinton Leupp for his featured performance in Girls Will Be Girls (Sundance 2003) directed by Richard Day. Show contains mature content. The show is sponsored by LEO Weekly.
